By sorting their waste, they respect nature. And the law.
The RECYCLE BXL PRO campaign presents and highlights businesses and Horeca establishments in Brussels who respect their legal obligations in regard to waste sorting and management. This will mean that they can serve as an example and encourage others to follow suit.
These ambassadors therefore make up the heart and driving force of the RECYCLE BXL PRO campaign. They demonstrate that it is entirely possible to meet waste sorting and management obligations, with great benefits for their professional activity.

A Fost Plus and Brussels Environment initiative
About Fost Plus
Fost Plus is a non-profit organisation responsible for the selective collection, sorting and recycling of household packaging waste in Belgium. Through promotion, coordination and funding, we implement the circular packaging economy in practical terms. We recycle over 90% of the household packaging on the market every year thanks to the efficient collection of glass, paper-cardboard and PMD.
Packaging management has evolved firmly in the direction of sustainable materials management. To this end, we work closely with all parties concerned: companies, federations, authorities, municipalities and intermunicipal organisations, collection, sorting and recycling companies and the general public. Fost Plus was established in 1994 on the instigation of the companies and operates in all three regions of the country. Our mission enables us to attain the European objectives for sustainable waste management.
